    Where can I find the old MacRumors forum emoticons? I liked them better.

    @redheeler posted this a while ago:

    The code can be appended to your user style sheet, which is a text document saved with the file extension '.css'. In Safari, you can choose a stylesheet by going to Safari > Preferences… > Advanced > Style sheet.

    You can also paste it into a new Stylish style sheet.

    I agree, especially since the new ones look much worse on Retina. Use the post quoted above to get them back :)

    I'm looking for the actual images so that I can put them in my posts whenever I want to express an emotion that the new ones don't express correctly. Like the new mad emoticon. Sometimes I need a mad emoticon but the new ones don't exactly match, while the old ones matched perfectly.

    I can probably find the images in that style sheet there.

    Yes, the images are actually imbedded in the style sheet. Paste any of the URLs starting with "data:image/png;base64" in your browser and you can save them from there.

    I did this just in case the originals become inaccessible, but at the time of posting they are still there. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Ok I got the images thanks [​IMG]

    Do you know how to post an image on the forum with a specific size? Like the old avatars were. With those, the tag specified a size of 18 x 18 when the actual image was twice that, so that they would render in high resolution on retina displays.

    I can't find any option to set a specific size, so the only way I can post an emoticon that renders at the right size is to actually resize the emoticon to 18x18. But then it wouldn't look good on retina displays.

    @poiihy I made a thread relating to the subject here. I really wish the admins would add a custom or 50% display size feature, since it doesn't currently seem to be possible.

    Here are the emotions and the resized emotions, as well as URLs to online versions so you can put them in your posts. [​IMG]

    I had an idea for a browser extension that inserts your own emoticons in your posts by inserting an IMG code in your post. You would have a database that you open by clicking the icon in the navbar, and you can pick any emotion. And you can add emotions to your list.
    I looked on Chrome web store but no such extension exists. [​IMG]
    If there are any extension makers out there then here's a good idea for you.
